I love playing around with lipstick, which likely doesn’t come as a surprise. Especially as the weather gets warmer I find myself more likely to try out bolder, more fun products. So for today’s post I thought I would share 3 fun lip trends for summer:
Glitter Top Coats
At first I was really intimidated by this trend but after seeing a look my sister created on her blog (makeupped.com), I was eager to give it a try for myself! It’s bold yes, but totally fun with a more minimal eye look. I use Lime Crime’s Diamond Crusher in the shade ‘Choke’ but there are lots of other options on the market. I like it paired over a dark purple as my sister has done, but it also is a bit more wearable over a nude lipstick. The possibilities are endless with glitter top coats! I tend to reserve this one for nights out though since it is a bit bold for the office.
I didn’t think I could pull off such a bright hue originally but the NYX Liquid Suede Cream Lipstick in ‘Respect The Pink’* has really grown on me! The bright fuchsia hue has blue undertones, which is quite flattering on and is perfect for day or night. I can easily wear this one to work or for a night out, so I really like how versatile it is. The formula is comfortable to wear and the lipstick is affordable which is great. I can’t wait to see how this one looks with a tan!
Red-orange lipsticks are a favourite of mine for summer. I’ve recently been obsessed with The Body Shop Colour Crush Lipstick in ‘105’*. This lipstick is really creamy and comfortable on the lips. The pigmentation is great and I think this particular shade would flatter all skin tones.
